Bert, where do you get your Horns Painted ? ................ (BD-Design)

Curious as to where you get your Horns Painted..... I used a Custom Motorcycle Painter in the Minneapolis Area... They complained about how difficult it was to get the Throat Painted and Sanded (They couldn't get their hands in the cramped space etc.)

Just wondering who do you use to paint your Horns....

Hi Kevin,

Just wondering who do you use to paint your Horns....

I have them painted at a local car repair shop and yes, it is not as simple as most people think hence the relative high price to charge for a professional paint job... :yes:

Cheers,

Bert

As far as sanding and Painting? --- They did a pretty decent job on mine, but as you get deep into the throat, the surfaces are not quite as smooth as the outside. Does your painter got this all figured out?

Kevin, the quite skilled auto body and fender shop which did my Oris 150 horns did an excellent job smoothing and painting the entire horn, inside and out. The throat is as glossy as the remainder of the horn.
